The View From 1776

A Really Inconvenient Truth

Democrats, eager to destroy the President at any cost, are rallying behind liberals on both sides of the political aisle, under the banner of failure-in-Iraq. 

The truth is, as President Bush states and Al Queda admits, we are fighting Islamic jihad in Iraq, rather than reacting, in the Clinton fashion, after the fact to repetitions of 9/11 here on the home front.

  1. "This report is just the latest evidence that the war in Iraq is not only justified, but is a critical front in the U.S.-led war on terrorism."

    Ok! But lets have a competent administration to do it. This administration has only fanned the fames of terrorism with its incompetence and stonewalling. This incompetence is finally coming to light. But Bush&Co; call this incompetence strategy. Let's get a new strategy. Let's change the CEO of this debacle.

  2. Ignorant buffoons are always eager to criticize - anybody can do that. If it is more than hula-hoop "feelings," it will also supply a higher quality alternative. Today's liberal/socialist/humanist cannot do that. Does not.

    Few, if any, have any military knowledge or experience. The air coming out of their mouths is similar to the breeze they produce in 'passing wind.' They are Fart-mouthed - and self-declared.

    They cannot describe a meaningful or guaranteed option. Include children, retardants, Kerry, Teddy, and Bill the BS Sexpert. Volunteers? Aplenty...

    I thank God there is sense greater than the non- variety. "Got Criteria?" See Psalm 119:1-176

    Semper Fidelis

    I prefer an imperfect Bush to a perfect disloyal- egoist and talky buffoon.

  3. David,

    Once again, outrageous claims - no proof. Please give citations of the 'many' incompetencies you "feel" Bush is guilty of. We've yet to hear one solid example of incompetence that is more than hyperventilated wishful thinking. Moreover, every suggestion thus far made by the left regarding how 'they' would pursue this war have amounted to dismal jokes. That makes claims of Bush's incompetence worse than laughable as these complaint do no more disrupt the guy in charge from venturing plans with greater potential. Were Bush to fight this war with any greater efficiency, you'd just be screaming for his blood. Oops! My mistake. You are already.

  4. Plus, they cannot name their own Criteria by which they name good and bad. Hot air.

    I repeat:
    One of the main reasons I prefer an imperfect George Bush is: he has all my favorite enemies. All.

    Semper Fidelis

  5. "... has all my favorite enemies."

    What is it people say about enemies?

    "Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake." - Napoleon Bonaparte

    "Never explain--your friends do not need it and your enemies will not believe you anyway." - Elbert Hubbard

    "I choose my friends for their good looks, my acquaintances for their good characters, and my enemies for their good intellects. A man cannot be too careful in the choice of his enemies." - Oscar Wilde

    "Friends may come and go, but enemies accumulate." - Thomas Jones

    "Use your enemy's hand to catch a snake." - Persian Proverb

    "Rejoice not at thine enemy's fall - but don't rush to pick him up either." - Jewish Proverb

    "I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: 'O Lord, make my enemies ridiculous.' And God granted it." - Voltaire

    "Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much." - Oscar Wilde

    "The scientific name for an animal that doesn't either run from or fight its enemies is lunch." - Michael Friedman

    "Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer." - Sun-tzu

    "One should forgive one's enemies, but not before they are hanged." - Heinrich Heine

    "The reason why great men meet with so little pity or attachment in adversity, would seem to be this: the friends of a great man were made by his fortune, his enemies by himself, and revenge is a much more punctual paymaster than gratitude." - Charles Caleb Colton

    Apparently, an awful lot. But my favorite goes something like "The character of a man is better known by his enemies than by his friends." If that's the case, Bush must be solid platinum because his enemies are knee deep.

  6. Well said, Bob, in spite of all references being humanistic opinions. Add the following similarity:

    "There are only two 'groups' that know US Marines:

    1. US Marines
    2. the enemy

    Everyone else has only a second-hand opinion."

    semper fidelis

  7. ...and this:

    If you are imperfect George Bush's opponent, then you are my opponent.

    If you are his enemy, you are mine. Sundra!!!

    semper fidelis

  8. I don't mind taking ideas from humanists. Remember, even a stopped clock is right once every 12 hours. For that matter, I have read Karl Marx and Adolf Hitler, and have found even they are not 100% lunatic. Only 99%, and that other 1% sometimes includes a quotable notion. Besides, many of the earlier humanists were not anti-religious, illiberal bigots. Many were distinctly men of religious conviction and learning. They did not take the view just because it's possible to determine some truth via human means we can or should dispense with G-d altogether. We should, therefore, distinguish between rational and irrational humanists.

    The other thing to consider is, it is good to read the words and ideas of your opponent; the better to turn his own words against him!
